Definition - What does Downhole Tools mean?
Downhole Tools refer to the tools used in several industrial operations such as the production of oil and gas, well drilling, well interventions and well completions. To carry out these activities, several Downhole Tools such as roller centralizers, drilling jars, drag friction, shock tools, fishing tools, tubular tools and drill pipes are used. These tools are used in the bottom hole assembly for workover operations and well completions. They are mostly used during extreme temperatures and pressure conditions.
Petropedia explains Downhole Tools
These tools are used in the bottom hole assembly, which is selected based on the reservoir formation characteristics. The tools can reduce the costs related to oil recovery-activities and ensure an increase in oil production. The Downhole Tools are used for various operations like fishing, casing, cementing, well-bottom communication, drilling, logging, well measurement and fracturing. The tools have several types based on which their markets are segmented. They can be divided according to their applications - well drilling, formation and evaluation, well intervention, well completion and oil and gas production.
